This study investigates the role of globalization and talent management of teaching hospitals in Nigeria. The study revealed that the dimensions of globalization as reviewed in extant research such as economic forces, technological forces and global education system pointedly associate with talent management and its measures such as talent identification, talent attraction and talent retention and that performance management system. It was then concluded that knowledge workers are highly mobile and are highly sought-after resources. Consequently, a highly mobile workforce and increasingly competitive labor market have highlighted the need to focus on talent management. Thus, it was suggested that globalization impacts should provide clear advancement opportunities, and implement contingent rewards; thus performance management system can be turned into an effective tool to retain top talent and prevent competitors from stealing a firm’s crucial source of competitive advantage.
